April is coming to a close, which means that streaming platforms have dished out more content to be excited about. Here are some notable picks to consider viewing this month:

The Dark Knight Rises (HBO Max):

If you have never heard of “The Dark Knight” trilogy, then put this movie on top of your “to watch” list. It is such an emotional, yet amazing story as it follows Batman (Christian Bale) returning after vanishing for eight years, working alongside Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) to save Gotham from the evil and brutal terrorist, Bane (Tom Hardy). You won’t want to miss out on this exciting adventure now streaming on HBO Max.

Into The Beat (Netflix):

After watching the trailer, inspiration and romance are both understatements for what this film can potentially be once it releases. It follows a teen ballerina (Alexandra Pfeifer) discovering hip-pop for the first time by chance. Now, she has two choices; whether she follows her parents’ footsteps or her new passion for this musical genre. This feel-good film is now streaming on Netflix.

Mortal Kombat (HBO Max):

“Mortal Kombat,” the tournament of ancient martial arts, is finally going to be seen on screen. Mixed Martial Arts fighter, Cole Young (Lewis Tang) goes on a journey, seeking out the greatest champions to fight against the enemies of the Outworld in order to save the universe. If you’re a “Mortal Kombat” fan, you won’t want to miss this film. It is now available on HBO Max.

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse (Amazon Prime):

Coming to Amazon Prime is the origin story of John Kelly (Michael B. Jordan), a U.S. Navy SEAL seeking justice for his pregnant wife, who was murdered by Russian Soldiers. However, when Kelly joins the fellow SEAL Karen Greer (Jodie Turner-Smith) and CIA agent Robert Ritter (Jamie Bell), the mission exposes a plan that threatens to engulf the U.S. and Russia in an all-out war. This action-thriller film will be available on Amazon Prime on April 30.

Arrival (Amazon Prime):

“Arrival” stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner; what more do you want? This film is about the works of the military as they attempt to communicate with alien lifeforms after multiple spacecrafts appeared all over the world. This film is based on the book “Story of Your Life,” written by Eric Heisserer – who is also responsible for films such as “Birdbox,” “Final Destination 5,” and “A Nightmare on Elm Street” – and Ted Chiang. If there is any dramatic, sci-fi movie you don’t want to miss, this is the one. “Arrival” will be streaming on Amazon Prime on April 28.
